multitude monday

Here is my Multitude Monday post-a day late....again. I have a very good excuse though, I spent yesterday at my sisters house chatting and drinking coffee... oh wait, I suppose that isn't a very good excuse afterall! Oh well.

Well here it is, a day late:

Friday night.

There's a knock at the door. We're not expecting anyone.

It's our neighbor and fellow growth group goer. {FYI growth group is what we call our bible study}

He has a few envelopes in his hands and says they are from the people in our growth group.

We had no idea....NO idea what on earth they could be.

We settle into the couch and open them up.

Our wonderful growth group wanted to send us on a date night and to a hockey game-what?!? Yup. They just thought that after the miscarriage we could use a night out and some cheering up.

Isn't that lovely of them?

Oh, and they even offered free babysitting.



I am so thankful for all of those thoughtful people, who surprised us immensely with such a wonderful gift! And truely, it's not even so much the gift as it is the thought behind it!

Isn't that such a great example of the love that the body of Christ has for one another? It really blessed us, to know that we have such kind and caring people around us, who will see us through hard times and rejoice with us in good times.

That is what I am thankful for! Really, truly from the very bottom of my heart.
